Roman Death Masks and the Recasting of Likeness

Patrick Crowley specializes in the art and archaeology of the Roman world. In addition to traditional categories of Roman art such as sarcophagi and portraiture, his research interests include ancient theories of vision, historiography, and the reception of antiquity in modern and contemporary art. His current book project, The Phantom Image: Visuality and the Supernatural in the Greco-Roman World, is the first major historical study of ghosts in the art and visual culture of classical antiquity.  He is the author of "Picturing the Gaze in the Greco-Roman World" in D. Damaskos and D. Plantzos, Roman Reception of Greek Art and Culture (Wiley-Blackwell, forthcoming 2013)

This event is free and open to the public.  Registration is not required.  For further information, please contact the Department of Art, (416) 978-7892.
